...since this was my first Dead show, but the energy level of the band is great. No big jams but great versions of "Euro 72" songs that were fairly new to the repertoire. Garcia's singing is passionate and even ventures into a bit of falsetto during "Comes a Time." Keith is well represented in the mix, a bit surprising since he'd only recently joined the band.

If Ya Wanna Rock and Roll
Spirited performance of a band disgruntled by equipment woes and marvelously captured in this re-master. This is choice pre-FM sound for 1971.
Here is lots of heavy metallic rock and roll from a bunch of angry boys and men. The true rockin slash incubates during Playing and unleashes its fury thereinafter. Every song a workout with welcome breaks in between.
Comes A Time is a breather of pure nitrous. And then...
RR Blues, Cumberland, One More Saturday Night, Bertha, and all the rest, is just Good Ol' Grateful Dead-time Fire.
Jerry, Phil and Bobby, guitars and vocals, are prominent in the mix. Keith is right in the pocket.
